FLORIDA (WCJB)-- Weston, Florida, Apotex Corporation has issued a voluntary recall of its Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets.

The company said the problem lies with the blister packaging, which may have pills arranged in the wrong order or having missing pills all together.

Taking birth control in the wrong order, or incorrect pills could result in the medication being less effective.

Those who are taking the medications are advised to reach out to their doctors.
